Yin Yoga Masterclass - The Anatomy of Back Pain at Golden Yogi, Auckland (in English)
Lower back pain is the most prevalent of musculoskeletal conditions and its impact is pervasive. It affects hundreds of millions of people around the world. 80% of adults experience back pain at least once a year. It is the most common cause of job-related disability and a leading contributor to missed work days.
In this 4 ½ hour Yin Yoga intensive masterclass – The Anatomy of Back Pain, we will examine lower back pain – from a physiological and psychological perspective.
You will learn about fascia – the “yin” tissue - the integral role it plays in the lower back, the importance of fascial fitness for maintaining a mobile and pain free body and why Yin Yoga is considered to be a highly effective, therapeutic method to help relieve and/or cure back pain.
The “backbone” of Yin Yoga is yoga anatomy from a functional perspective. You will learn about skeletal variation, the limitations of alignment and the importance of recognising your own unique bone structure and subsequently discovering your own unique yoga asana practice.
You will then experience a deeply relaxing Yin Yoga class for the back. You will be guided within, to listen to your body and learn how to modify the asanas to respect your individual bone structure. You will come away from this masterclass with a new appreciation and understanding for the wonder that is your back.
This masterclass is suitable for teachers and students alike, who want to discover how a little Yin Yoga Love can go a long way to healing back pain forever.
